- What you’ll pay for an A4 2.0-litre TDI with 136bhp
- What you’ll pay for an A4 2.0-litre TDI with 163bhp
- P11D values released early for Parkers by Audi
With the imminent arrival of the new Audi A4, you might be considering it an ideal company car choice when it goes on sale early in 2012.
The German company claims the new cars will be more efficient, better to drive with improved infotainment systems, but how much will they cost in you company car tax?
The most economical model is the Audi A4 2.0 TDI with 136bhp that will return an average of 67.3mpg. That’ll be the cheapest option but if you want something with a bit more power you might want to go for the new A4 2.0 TDI with 163bhp that achieves 64.2mpg with 115g/km. Both engines are available for the Saloon and the Avant.
So, if you are thinking of ticking the box for either option then you’ll need to know what the tax burden will be.
Audi has released the 2012 prices for the two models exclusively for Parkers and they are pretty much the same as the outgoing model. The P11d value for the entry level 2.0-litre model with the136bhp output is £26,555.
On this model the current CO2 emissions of 119g/km have been reduced to 112g/km to yield a Benefit-in-Kind tax rating so if you divide £26,555 x 0.13 you get a cash equivalent value of £3,452.
If you are a 40% tax payer you multiply that by 0.4 which gives an annual tax bill of £1,380 and if you are a 20% tax payer you’ll pay £690.
If you opt for the higher powered 161bhp TDI SE model the P11d value is set at £27,575 and that has a CO2 115g/km also giving a BIK rate of 13% so if you divide that £27,575 x 0.13 you get a cash equivalent value of £3,585.
Again if you are a 40% tax payer you’ll multiply that by 0.4 which gives an annual tax bill of £1,434 and if you are a 20% tax payer you’ll pay £717.
